Let me tell you something people. You can break your ass being a friend to some people when they needed you the most. But don’t you ever expect them to be the same to you when you need them the most. Some people are just no good and that is the way it is. That’s a sad commentary on them, not you.

I can always look at myself in the mirror. While others run off like a hypocrite to church as if God can’t see them outside of his house.

They are in for a rude awakening when their time comes. And I’ll still be able to look at myself in the mirror.

Friends are those who don’t need to be asked for help, they’re just there.

Users of those Friends are those incapable of returning that friendship. Some don’t stab you in the back. Some stab you while looking straight at you and think nothing of it.

Cold Unfeeling Cowards.

Powerless over no one most of all themselves. It must be sad to be that miserable and live in a world of their own lies.

I’m glad I’m me.
